If you’re like me, you’re looking for something to watch since you’re spending more time at home. Maybe you want crime-drama, something quirky, or something to tickle your funny bone. We could all use suggestions from time to time, don’t you think? I’ve put together a short list of some shows you may (or may not) enjoy. It just depends on your own personal tastes. I hope this list is helpful to someone!
Prodigal Son – This show is amazing! It stars Tom Payne (The Walking Dead’s Jesus) and Michael Sheen (Underworld, Good Omens). Payne’s character, Malcolm Bright, is the son of Martin Whitley, famous surgeon and serial killer dad (Sheen) who is in prison for his gruesome crimes. Malcolm is a forensic profiler, working with the NYPD. Could Malcolm be just like his father? Renewed for Season 2.
Threesome – A silly but hilarious show from the UK. Threesome had me in stitches! Three best friends (one girl, two guys – one is gay) end up in a drunken threesome while partying. Girl gets pregnant and craziness and laughter follow as they try to navigate through the situation. From 2011. Sadly, only 2 seasons.
The Neighborhood – I never cared much for Cedric the Entertainer but he’s hilarious in this show. With a wife, and 2 dumb as hell sons, they try to navigate the weirdness of having white neighbors in their black neighborhood. The thing is, the white neighbors are oblivious to how things are in the ‘hood and try way too hard at times to fit in. Renewed for Season 3.
Hunters – Outstanding! I didn’t think I’d like this show due to the subject matter. Hunters takes place in the 70’s and focuses on a group of Nazi Hunters; Jews who are ready to get their revenge and justice. The gang quickly discover a new conspiracy boiling. With a serious plot twist at the end of the first season, that I didn’t see coming, it will leave you wanting the next season NOW! Based on true events. Stars Al Pacino.
Killing Eve – I never watched this show on tv but was desperate for something different to watch on Netflix. Well, I found it. Killing Eve is definitely different! And quirky as hell. An MI5 security officer chases a young, intelligent female assassin, which leads to some violent scenes and odd situations. Stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer. 3 seasons; I have yet to see Season 3.
Six Feet Under – A friend of mine suggested this series. It’s quite a few years old (2001-2005) but I really enjoyed watching this show’s very screwed up family trying to run a funeral home after the patriarch of the family dies. Many comical situations, dysfunctional people at best, and very adult situations. 5 seasons. Stars Michael C. Hall. (Dexter)
Yellowstone – I’ve only just started this series; it’s a great story so far and is well acted. Kevin Costner plays the patriarch of a ranching family fighting with modern developers and the Native Americans wanting their land back. The family members all have a story of their own. Don’t let the sexually overt daughter put you off; there’s a story to be told. Currently airing Season 3.
Have you seen any of these shows? What are your thoughts? It’s really hard for me to find shows to watch most of the time. I don’t like romance, romance-comedy, superhero/villains, anime, westerns (for the most part), or horror movies. It makes things a bit more complicated…not to mention time consuming! I spend way too much time trying to find shows to watch, so if you have suggestions for me, lay ’em on me!! Please and thank you!
